French Toast Panic!

The weathermen have predicted a huge snow storm for tomorrow. This of course sends millions of Rhode Islanders to the grocery store for milk and bread despite the fact that the weathermen are notoriously wrong. The Weathermen Underground was actually a group of people during the 60's who had to go underground because they were getting weather predictions accurate and this cheesed off the mainstream, right wing elitist weathermen ("We can't have accuracy! That's just too...too...helpful!"). Wait, no, I just made that up...

Anyway, wondering what to do with your abundant stash of milk and bread?

Baked French Toast
(courtesy of my sister-in-law)

1 lb of bread
8 eggs
3 cups milk
2 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon cinnamon

Spray a 9 x 13 pan with non-stick spray. Rip bread into bite size pieces and put in pan. Mix eggs, milk, vanilla, and cinnamon in a bowl and pour evenly over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Topping
6 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon corn syrup

Melt butter in small sauce pan. Mix the sugar and corn syrup in and simmer until bubbling (stir occasionally). Pour over top of dish French Toast and bake uncovered at 350 for 40 minutes.


If you're nice to me, I'll share my Mexican Hot Chocolate recipe.

Yo can jazz up the same recipe by cutting an 8 oz bar of cram cheese into 1 inch cubes and randomly mixing them into the cut up bread - do every thing else the same - comes out kind of like a cheese pastry - you could get fancier and put blueberries or strawberries with the cram cheese as well - you may need to add one more egg!

The term "French Toast Panic", in reference to a severe snowstorm, is, I believe, a direct quote from Jim Hendrickson.

I'm making this for breakfast for Christmas am- but I'm going to add 1/4 cup pecans to the top. :)
Looking forward to it.
